Rebel UK lawmakers unveil Invoice to Prevent no-deal Brexit

UK Labour MP Hilary Benn published information on Monday of a’cross-party’ invoice to prevent no-deal Brexit.

“The intention behind this Bill is to make certain that the UK doesn’t depart the European Union about the 31 October with no arrangement, unless Parliaments consents,” the lawmaker said on Twitter.

If no agreement was concluded with the EU, or when parliament has not accepted a no-deal Brexit from October 19,”then the Prime Minister should send a letter to the President of the European Council asking an Article 50 expansion until 31 January 2020,” Benn said.

“The Bill has cross-party assistance from MPs who consider that the consequences of No Deal for its market and the nation would be tremendously damaging,” Benn continued.

An alliance of opposition lawmakers are interfering with rebels from Johnson’s Conservative Party to seize charge of parliament and tie the government’s hands with laws that could obstruct a no-deal exit.

Only 24 hours before parliament yields on Tuesday from the summer break, Johnson’s enforcers warned rebels when they voted against the authorities they’d be kicked from the Conservative Party.

With minimal clarity about whether the deadlocked British parliament may have the ability to think of a settlement into the three-year Brexit catastrophe, talk turned into a potential election.
